Jepson at Cambridge Summer Program
Jepson at Cambridge is a summer program offered by the Jepson School in collaboration with the University of Richmond School of Law, which has held a summer program in England for more than 30 years. Students spend five weeks studying at Emmanuel College, Cambridge University. Students participate in classes, lectures and out-of-town trips to examine law and leadership in an international context and to experience the rich intellectual and cultural history of England.
Meeting an international political leader, analyzing the leadership style of an international corporation and punting along the River Cam are all experiences students can have during the program.
The program is open to all students at University of Richmond, including graduating seniors. Although there are no specific criteria for acceptance, students with a strong academic record and an interest in law are particularly well suited for the program.
The curriculum changes every summer. Courses are taught by Cambridge faculty. The following two courses will be offered in Summer 2017:
HIST 401-01 Legal History
Prof. Neil Gareth Jones
Magdalene College, Cambridge University
Development of legal institutions using historical perspective to help understand reasons for apparent anomalies in our legal system, such as distinctions between law and equity, crime and tort, and to aid decisions of law reform.
LDST 390-01 Comparative Public Law of U.S. and U.K.
Prof. Mark C. Elliott
St. Catharine's College, Cambridge University
Examination and comparison of underlying principles of constitutional and administrative law in the U.S. and the U.K.
About Emmanuel College
Emmanuel College is one of more than thirty constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge, and it is located in the Cambridge city centre. Emmanuel College was founded in 1584, and early graduates were among those who settled New England in the first half of the 17th century, not least of whom was John Harvard, namesake and first benefactor of Harvard University. London is only fifty miles away and is served by frequent fast train and bus connections.
Students are invited to attend an information session in the fall semester. Interested students should submit an application together with a non-refundable $150 deposit to Dr. Terry Price (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the end of fall classes. Applicants receive an e-mail notification of their application status in January.
